Founded in 2016 WWC UK is a community & online platform for women who create in their businesses, careers and lives to share, support, grow, problem solve and connect with like minded entrepreneurs and creative women in business.
This website has grown from a calling to help share the skills and purpose of fellow creative women and an innate passion for building connections and community (in person and online) so that we as creative souls can support and empower each other as we grow our dream businesses and lives.
What to expect here - regular blog posts featuring topics and themes around creative business including tips, experiences and advice. A fortnightly WWC interview, personal perspective pieces from a collection of wonderful contributors, seasonal advice on business, health and heart AND quarterly in person events... the #WWCweekend, one day events and a monthly meet up. We have built a members fb group where we share weekly promts, support and advice with our buzzing community
Thank you for joining us, its lovely to see you here
Hello I'm Amy and I am the founder and creative force behind Women Who Create UK.
Designer-Maker, Teacher, Mentor and Author by training, creator of vibrant communities & empowering connections by calling. My creative career has taken many forms and I am lucky enough to have been my own boss throughout that journey. Today a 'portfolio career' is something many of us have cultivated not wanting to be restricted by traditional employment paths. Which allows us more flexibility to create the lifestyle and creative career we dream of... if we show up and do the work we are inspired to do.
I am passionate about creative living, cultivating community online and in person, as well as sharing alternative business tools and hand craft skills.
The Women Who Create UK platform, events and community started life as a sparkle in a conversation with my creative coach at a point in my creative business journey when I was really struggling to see where the path was leading me next. From there I drew from 10 years of experience and life as a creative business owner to re-connect with the amazing women whom I have been lucky enough to work and build friendships with during my life to create WWCUK an active community for women in creative business. And creative women in business!
core values - people, community, creativity, freedom, equality, clarity, friendship, empowerment, career as lifestyle, mindfulness, balance & inspiration, creative spirit
The Women Who Create Things blog interview series was born in 2015. A starting point, a way to reconnect with my peers and share their experiences, projects and offerings within a network of like minded women AND to the a wider crafts audience with the hope that their journeys would inspire other women to take the leap into their passion projects & true career paths and not feel alone whilst doing so.
Its thanks to the creative women who are involved that the WWC community continues to grow and be open to new and exciting possibilities. If you'd like to get involved with the website or contribute to the blog please use the contact form below to say hello.
